ID: CC21186
An excellent miniature Cuprian Smithsonite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia richly coating a drusy layer of microcrystalline snow-white pearlescent Dolomite crystals encrusting a characteristic greyish-pink Dolomite rock matrix. The Cuprian Smithsonite is a striking minty peppermint green which forms sharp rhombic crystals to 8 mm on edge. The specimen is made especially attractive by concentric colour zoning produced by nested rhombohedral phantoms in alternating shades of peppermint cream. This is a beautiful and most eye-catching miniature Cuprian Smithsonite on Dolomite.
